‘Lord, what fools these mortals be!’

An enchanted Athenian forest becomes home to fairies, lovers and players alike in Shakespeare’s greatest comedy. Magic, mischief and mayhem soon combine in a hilarious but dark tale of love triangles and mistaken identity.

The Marlowe Society, one of Cambridge University’s most prestigious drama societies, returns to Cambridge Arts Theatre after its string of successful productions including Othello and Much Ado About Nothing.

The Marlowe Society has launched the careers of some of Britain’s greatest actors including Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi, Emma Thompson and Rachel Weisz, and continues its tradition of showcasing the best theatrical talent at the university.
